We regret to advise that circumstances beyond our control means we have to cancel our Club Day this Saturday 5th September - which was also going to be the "Compete for Pete" Club Day which was going to donate some proceeds to Peter Benners Give a Little fundraiser.
If you need a karting fix this weekend Kartsport Bay of Plenty are having a club day on Sunday the 6th.
I'm sure you will all head over to the Give a Little page and give some of your race fee to Peters cause.
See you November 8th for our next meeting. This will also be our club champs for 2020.
Track is open for practice and normal rules apply and please adhere to the Covid 19 Level 2 protocol.
Kinds regards from the Committee.
A reminder that tyres are NOT to be left at the track or put into the rubbish bins. They cost a lot of money to dispose of.
If you leave tyres at the track you will have your membership revoked immediately and potentially you could be banned from using it forever.
We are not a rubbish transfer station. You must take all rubbish and tyres away with you. You have already agreed to this rule when you accepted the rules as part of your membership renewal.
We will be installing cameras at the complex in the not so distant future and if you are caught dumping your tyres and rubbish at the complex then you will lose your membership.
Thanks in advance from the Committee.
Please sign in using the Govt Covid Tracer app as well and the IDme app - details and QR codes are on display around the complex.
Practice your normal Level 2 Covid requirements -
* don't go to the track if you are unwell
* wash your hands regularly and thoroughly
* sanitise regularly
* keep within your bubble and practice the 2m rule
We again remind you of the requirements in order to practice at our track -
** you need to be a current paid-up member of Kartsport Tokoroa
** your kart, clothing, helmet etc need to be compliant with Kartsport NZ rules and regulations
** You must have a Kartsport NZ competition or practice license
** You either have a key or will sign the indemnity and pay the $20 practice fee.
** you must lock the gate behind you .
No exceptions...if you are caught not abiding by the rules you could be banned from the complex forever.
cheers and have fun
Kartsport Tokoroa Committee
Thank you for your cooperation.

You are very welcome to come along to any Club Day regardless of it being a points series or club championship. Catch the action, see the format, learn some skills....and....DEFINITELY BRING YOUR KART.
We will open the track over the lunch break and after racing so you can practice what you have been watching. Also, a lot of racing members will be there and will be only too happy to offer technical and racing advice.
If demand is there we can open the track for you at other times during the day if you wish...we are flexible so please don't hesitate to ask for Terry Palmer or Marin Vucich or Russell & Gaye Hoskins or Graeme Lambert or the chick on the gate Sheryl McIntosh in the first instance. We all hang on the concrete opposite the entrance to the grid area.
Looking forward to seeing you there.

Click here for an Excel kart set-up sheet where you can record all your data for each meeting - a great resource to look back at see from past events what works and what doesnt. You can print the second page on the back of the first page so you can record lap times, rpm, temp etc for each race and lap so you see all the data for a meeting on one page. There is also a page to record your base set-ups. Best to go 'save as' when the prompt comes up, save it, then open it in Excel.
Lap records (as recorded by the AMB lapscoring system) are here.
